24/08/10 - Impressive GCSE Results at Newtownhamilton High School
Staff and pupils of Newtownhamilton High School were delighted by the 2009 publication of statistics by the Department of Education, which showed that the school was the highest performing controlled non-selective school in Northern Ireland, with 88% of Year 12 pupils gaining 5 or more GCSE grades at A*-C.
Further success has been achieved by pupils in 2010 with the arrival of the latest GCSE results in August, with many pupils achieving very highly. Of particular note are Matthew Coyle and Rachel Johnston, both of whose results are composed of entirely A* and A grades. Top pupil Matthew has attained 7A* and 2A grades.
